whether that may have played a role. when they arrived, this he say this fire was hot and already moving overnight on south almadon avenue, burning sheds and trailers behind a small home. because there were buildings close by, firefighters called a second alarm to keep it from spreading. arson investigators were called to the scene. >> this is a fire we are believing to be a battery that exploded. residents said they were charging a battery. it exploded and came out. that's what we are working on right now, the cause of the fire. >> reporter: no reports of any injuries. several people were displaced. i'm told the red cross was out here for a time. the fire is out. then, there was another potentially hazardous situation to deal with. that was the number of chemicals left in the garage. so we are told that several additional crews had to come out and deal with that. right now, though, all the firefighters are gone but you can see quite a bit of damage left to this garage.
reporting live in san jose, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> firefighters in southern california still trying to gain the upper hand on a wind-whipped wild fire burning in riverside county. . the so-called summit fire has destroyed one home and more than 500 people have been evacuated from the area. so far, the fire has charred nearly 3,000 acres and crews say this one is only about 35% contained. all the high winds, that low humidity mixed in with the hot temperatures making this one extremely difficult for some of the 400 firefighters out there battling that fire. it is 5:04. we could learn more today in the search for a serial car thief who has made his mark in several bay area counties. 42-year-old dimitry store is expected of stealing vehicles in sonoma, marin, santa cruz and monterrey counties. he is also suspected of attacking a police officer and robbing a man at gunpoint. he was last seen in the santa

the last thing you want to think about is our makeup bad for our health. we may have to worry about our lipstick and lip glosses, because of this study done out of uc berkeley. the school of public health tested 32 different lipsticks and lip glosses that are commonly found in drug stores and department stores. the lipsticks you are seeing here are generic, because the study doesn't list the brands researchers tested. at this point, we just don't know. what we do know, nine metals were detected in these lipsticks, and glosses, including cadmium, chrome yun, aluminum and lead. this shows lead is present in many lipsticks but at acceptable levels. the red flag is the amount of chro chromium detected, a car sin know jen linked to stomach tumors and man began knees was
found, problems with our nervous system. reapplying your color and gloss two to three times a day could result in overexposure of these metals. here is the takeaway, ladies. the study says that blotting, that could be beneficial to us. then, we are absorbing and consuming less of the bad stuff. researchers say this isn't exactly cause for you to throw away your lipsticks and lip glosses. they admit this is a small study and hope it grabs the attention of the fda and hoping more studies will be conducted. i guess we are all going to be blotting. >> and practicing safe kissing. >> the boys are dangerous too. >> boys thinking about themselves in all this. 5:07. it's all right, jon. we love you. 58 in livermore, 58 to start the day in san jose and 56 in sunnyvale. as you are getting your day started, reminder, bring that

right now that government cutbacks which are so popular an capitol hill are not helping. they are hurting. many see this as a political issue. republicans want to get government spending under control and see this fed statement as an attack on the politics. this frustrates economists who see their profession as a science mostly independent of party politics. austerity doesn't work. that, in fact, can hurt recovery. it is an idea that's quickly catching on in europe as well. lots of protests this week with the may day holiday over government cutbacks. let's check the markets this morning. kayla tausche is live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning good morning, scott. futures are higher after stocks suffered their worst start in nearly a year. poor economic data hurt the markets early on while they rebounded initially. the losses picked up in the final hour of trading. the fed, as expected, said it will keep buying billions of

legs. those four legs move in different directions. that's not going to be good. in a statement, a spokesperson for the metropolitan transportation commission trying to put it in perspective says there are millions of welds on the bridge and this involved about 20 of them. this is not a safety problem. these welds do not affect structural stability. we have consulted with top industry experts and we are on top of this problem. this is not an unusual issue and this will not affect the scheduling for the opening of the bridge, end quote. the weld issue is servicing while engineering are still trying to figure out how to fix the steel rods that are snapping. they are part of the seismically safe design. now, in a preview of an exclusive investigative unit report, why would the embattled president of the state's public utility commission snub a senate attention for a day in napa. they are questioning a decision by michael peisy in an exclusive

"today in the bay's" christie smith is live on the scene there with more details on the ongoing investigation. kristy, good morning.
>> reporter: good morning, jon. one of the people on the property says he was charging a battery in the garage and then heard a boom, a big explosion and that's when this fire took off. you can see damage pretty bad this morning. this happened in really hot, dry weather conditions. so firefighters looking at that, at something that may have fanned this fire. this is a really deep property with sheds and trailers on it, at almadon and willow. right away, the concern was it might spread to the house up front and neighboring properties that butt right up to this one. when firefighters arrived about 11:30, they say it was already hot, this fire. the flames were big. they were moving fast. in the garage, they found a p potentially hazardous situation we are currently work in kind of a holding pattern with the report of chemicals in the back area. we want to investigate before we go further. >> reporter: now, those hazardous incident crews were called in to try and stop any
runoff from getting off the property and into any potential water source. there were a number of trailers on the property. several people were displaced because of this and the red cross was there to help those that needed it. reporting live in san jose, christie smith, "today in the bay." the woman accused of leaving poison orange juice at a starbucks in san jose is expected in court today. she is being charged with attempted murder. investigators say she mixed lethal amounts of rubbing alcohol in two bottles of orange juice and took some to the starbucks shop and left them on the shelf. a customer saw it happened and reported it. police have not released a motive but it appears she acted alone. a morgan hill daycare teacher accused of drugging toddlers with sleeping pills. she has pleaded not guilty to child endangerment.

how many times do you think you apply or reapply your lipstick or lip gloss? the study shows that women do so on average just 2.3 times a day. it turns out doing so could be bad for our health. not exactly the news we want to hear. uc berkeley's school of public health tested 32 different lipsticks and glosses that are commonly found in drug stores and department stores. the lipsticks we're showing you here are label listed because the study doesn't list the brands researchers tested. we do know nine metals were detected, cadmium, chromium, aluminum and lead. lead isn't the concern. it is the amount of chromium that researchers are concerned about. it is a known carcinogen. man began knees was found, linked to problems with our nervous system. applying and reapplying your color and gloss two to three
times a day could result in overexposure of these metals. the researchers admit this is a small study and more testing needs to be done. they are hoping the study grabs the attention of the fda and they will then conduct more testing. they do recommend it is always a good idea to blot, because then you are consuming less of the bad stuff. marla tallez, "today in the bay." thank you very much. california now suing retailers and candy makers claiming the companies exposed customers to illegal lead levels in candied plum and ginger products. the lawsuit filed earlier this week by the state attorney general's office accuses retailers like whole foods, trader joes and target of knowingly selling products that contain led. that violates proposition 65

"today in the bay's" tracie potts is live in washington, d.c. right now. telling us about how investigators think they may have been involved. good morning, tracy. good morning, jon, not from the beginning. not with the planning and not with the execution. after swapping text messages while tsarnaev was on the run. they think these three college friends of his went to his dorm and took away what ended up being evidence. tsarnaev's laptop and a backpack full of empty fireworks. the powder having been taken out of them. they are charged with lying to investigators and conspiracy to obstruct justice. they are behind bars pending hearings later this week, or next week, by the way. they are also looking at five to
eight years and $250,000 each in fines, if, in fact, they are convicted of playing that role. on capitol hill, we are awaiting a hearing next week, also next week, from the house homeland security committee. they want to talk with boston police commissioner to find out whether or not the fbi told him they were in his city investigating someone in his backyard. that would be tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, that tied in the shootout with police. >> thank you for that update. in the meantime, we are expecting to hear from the family of the martinez boy hurt when one of the bombs went off. this will happen tomorrow morning. aaron hern finally returning home from boston tuesday just in time to celebrate his 12th birthday. he underwent several surgeries and still has about 85 staples in his leg. doctors say he will make a full recovery. that is great news. he and his family will be talking to the media tomorrow

if the warriors win tonight, this would be the second time they would win the playoffs in 22 years. last time was '07. the time before that was 1991. you can see here at oracle arena, one reason why there is so much interest in that almost all 20,000 seats. there is just under 20,000. all of them are sold out. this is the 35th consecutive sellout for the team. that right there is a team record. the arena is for the most part ready. you can see they have t-shirts on most of the seats over here. they have some that are missing. they are short 3,000. this is what happened. the team obviously thought they were going to clinch this tuesday night in denver. that clearly did not happen. after this lost that game, someone made a quick call to the screen printer. there is this guy in emeryville who is promising to get the rest of these 3,000 t-shirts in here in time for tonight's game. it is going to be interesting because the warriors could advance to round two of the playoffs, also because of what is being said off the court.
